Lately, I’ve been seeing a resurgence of using a classic primary palette to create a playful and fun child’s space. (Check this one out, for example!) This color scheme makes for a great neutral space, and also has a bit of a nolstagic feel with the throwback colors. Leave your walls white and bright to keep it from feeling overly juvenile, and you’ll have a happy room you’ll love spending time in. Adding in a small collection of vintage toy cars and trucks would make for a really fun detail, as well.

Have you notices pineapples popping up everywhere? They seem to be a favorite this season, and with summer making its warm appearance, they are the perfect accent, and also pair perfectly with rattan. Pineapples are a symbol for hospitality and are a natural fit in home decor. Below are some ideas for incorporating this happy fruit into a baby nursery.

It seems going bright and white is a common trend these days, but I’ve been seeing a few dark rooms here and there that I find very inspiring. I’m trying to talk my husband into painting our living room black. I think it would be pretty amazing, but he’s not buying it quite yet, so we’ll see! Jordan and Lesley‘s recent bedroom redos are both great examples of darker walls that make for cozy rooms that are anything but drab. Everything pops off the dark background and it certainly makes for a calming, comforting place to sleep (always a plus with tiny ones!). Use a light colored rug, light artwork, and metallic finishes to keep it interesting. Here is a little inspiration:

Natural wood tones of varying shade paired with a neutral palette lend a calm, serene feel, perfect for a nursery. Baby will love the black and white contrast, and keeping the palette simple will make it easier to pull the room together. A couple of small pops of muted color, like that tray below and that kilim pillow, bring the space to life. Don’t be afraid to mix wood finishes and tones for a more interesting mix!

I’m loving the explosion of flowers in springtime, and always find it so inspiring, don’t you? My super talented friend Ashley Woodson Bailey just opened a shop to sell prints of her gorgeously moody flower photography, and it’s a great springboard for a room design. I’m especially loving this Neon Bash print, which has a hint of that radiant orchid everyone is talking about this year, and is perfect paired with neutral wood finishes and pops of yellow.

Do y’all have spring fever as much as I do? It’s getting really gorgeous here (Atlanta) and I just want to be outside in it! Here is a room inspired by the spring that’s in the air, with a vintage west coast skateboarding feel that would work for a girl or a boy. (How cute is that tank?!) Check out last year’s spring fever post, too. Sources listed below image.
